Iron Star at Worlds

  • Print

The five life-gaining "Lucky Charms" are oft-maligned, but every once in a while, they show up in tournament decks. Two years ago, one of the Top 8 decks from a Regionals in Australia featured Throne of Bone, but the pinnacle of the Lucky Charm's existance may have come at Worlds in 1995, where the format was Fourth Edition/Fallen Empires/Ice Age.

Italy's Andrea Redi was playing a deck that was sort of precursor to Sligh -- mono-red burn with a bunch of efficient creatures. His answer to the mirror match was to side in two copies of Iron Star, turning each spell cast into a chance for a little extra life.
